Tigers to Seek 7fh Straight Over Sagehens [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
Tigers to Seek 7fh Straight Over Sagehens Occidental’s Tigers, who are deadlocked with the Whittier Poets for the league lead in the SCIC baseball race, host thirdplace Pomona tomorrow afternoon on the Bengal baseball diamond at 3 o’clock. Coach Bill Anderson has named Dick Dreher to take the mound against the Sagehens. The Tigers are currently riding on the crest of a six-game winning streak and hope to make it seven on Saturday. First baseman Ken Wolters doubled deep into center field with two out in the bottom of the sixth inning to drive in Ray Todd and Russ Groat with the tie-breaking runs in the Tigers’ 4-2 victory over Glendale CC Tuesday afternoon. Russ Groat, third Bengal pitcher—following starter Dick Dreher and reliefer Frank Bennett—was credited with the victory. Dave Hess was the losing hurler. Todd led off the last of the sixth by walking. Groat layed down a bunt and both runners were safe when the Caltech second baseman failed to touch the bag. Todd and Groat advanced...
TootboTrTnS prmg/ Extra-Base Swats Spell 21-9 Oxy Win [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
TootboTrTnS prmg/ Extra-Base Swats Spell 21-9 Oxy Win By TOM PETERSON The resurgent Occidental horsehiders unloosed an extra-base hit barrage that included a home run and four doubles last Saturday as they massacred Caltech hurler Bob Winslow for 25 hits and an overwhelming 21-9 victory over the Engineers. The slugfest took place at Tournament Park in Pasadena. Three times the Tigers batted clear around as they tallied seven runs in the third, eight more in the sixth and wound up the day’s festivities by notching three markers on the scoreboard in the ninth. Second Victory The wild contest made it easy for Tiger left-hander Dick Dreher to achieve his second victory against no losses by scattering nine Beaver hits. Big Jim Burt, with a threerun homer, a double, two singles and seven runs batted in, along with Murray Via, who garnered five singles, led the assault against Winslow. Gordy Bonetto also wielded a big stick in the Tiger onslaught as he banged out four singles. Pat Delaney ...
Tennis Team Drops Two to Cats, Beavers [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
Tennis Team Drops Two to Cats, Beavers By CHUCK HAMMOND The Occidental varsity tennis team went down fighting for the fifth straight time in league play last Wednesday afternoon on the Bengal courts. Playing their best games of tennis this season, the Tigers almost upset Caltech but fell short by the slim margin of 5-4. The Tigers were seriously handicapped by the absence of Ted Pettit who was suffering from an ankle injury. And without Pettit competing in doubles competition, the Tigers were lost. However, they still fought their hearts out and almost pulled one out. Dick Martin and John Roney looked especially good for the Oxy raquetmen. Last Wednesday the Tigers lost to league-leading Redlands, on the Bulldogs’ home courts. The citrus-belters were just too strong for the never-say-die Oxy men. The Bengals gave their all but it was not enough, as the potent Bulldogs just had too much class.
Vote Bengals, Vote! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
Vote Bengals, Vote! Here we go again! The big ASOC spring election starts next Thursday and Friday with a large group of candidates ready to serve you, the student body of Occidental. You can be proud of the candidates both scholastically and interestwise. However, we do want to put down a few ideas for you to consider before you put that “X” down for any one person. It’s all too easy to vote for the bestlooking or most popular fellow or girl, but that’s not the point. The officers will be representing you at meetings with Redlands, Whittier, Caltech, the Pomona Colleges, etc., and the idea people will get of you and all Oxy students depends on how these representatives conduct themselves. Keep an eye open for the most-quali-fied person—the one who can make a good impression for Oxy and have, the grey matter to back it up with “words of wisdom.” Also, these people you elect spend several thousand dollars a year, most of it coming from your pockets. They should be thoughtful people w...
